It's been almost 9 months since my accident. My back is still aching constantly and I have yet to lose the weight I have gained from not being able to do any of my normal activities. Most days I want to cry when I look in the mirror, I hate looking at myself and seeing how much heavier I am now than I was before. I know most people don't see it, at least that's what they say, but I feel it. I hate eating because I can't help but feel twice as bad as normal when I eat.
I am happy that I can walk though. I try to remember to count my blessings that have come from this accident but it's hard, really hard. Here are some of the pics taken right before and after.
Bet you didn't know it was a bull riding accident.
